Terrible.

1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks agovia mobile
We originally booked through Booking.com however cancelled this 6 weeks before our arrival as we decided to go with their bigger room. We cancelled our booking with Booking.com and also contacted Carmen & Dave directly. Despite the booking being cancelled and us paying for the larger room with the motel directly, Carmen & Dave proceeded to charge us for the room we weren’t using and refused to assist us with a resolution because “they had been charged a commission of $23.55 by booking.com”. I followed up with Dave who spun a yarn that there was nothing they could since the transaction was processed. Absolutely terrible customer service, a bloody con and we do not recommend this accomodation to anyone.

    This place is super cute! A hidden wee peaceful gem in my opinion. Our stay was a last minute booking, the owners were very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are clean and well thought out. We would definitely stay again and recommend for sure.

    We stayed at the Cheviot Motel for one night.

    Our room was a one bedroom that had its own shower and toilet.

    The room was nice and clean and had a bar fridge, microwave, stove top, toaster and kettle.

    These rooms had a covered veranda with chairs, table and sofa. Was a nice view overlooking the well kept gardens.

    If there is one criticism, it would be that the bed was not the most comfortable I have slept in.

    Overall, it was worth the one night stopover.

    Room tip: Personally, I would choose the cabins with their own shower and toilet instead of having to use communal facilities.

    A very pleasant Caravan Park in a quiet country setting. The showers were hot and powerful and a bathmat was supplied. The camp kitchen was spacious and well equipped and the grounds green, quiet with plenty of shade . We were very impressed.

    What a lovely surprise to find this reasonably priced motel was so good to stay in. The grounds are very pretty with trees, shrubs and roses all around.
    There are motel units, cabins and a small camping ground.
    The person who checked us in was lovely.
    The motel room was clean and even though we stayed New Years night ( 2022/2023) we had a good sleep.
    Will certainly recommend this place to all friends from overseas who want a good experience of NZ.

    Room tip: This place has extras that make it great Such as a comfy small sofa outside each motel unit and table and chairs front AND back of the mote

    Fantastic little country campground. We have used this place on a number of occasions over the years, last two times this year with our caravan. It is a great place to stop in between Picton and Christchurch. It is quiet, surrounded by paddocks with sheep. Small and old but clean facilities, nicely maintained with character.
    Would have liked to have stayed longer but as usual on a mission to get to Chch
    Highly recommend

    Room tip: Could be a bit cramped when busy
